The risk in suggesting good hockey blogs to follow is that you inevitably forget some really worthwhile sites. I’m sure I will today, but I just wanted to take a moment to mention some sites that have certainly caught my eye over the past couple of years as I have become somewhat entrenched in this so-called “blogospehere”.
Some links are also available on the right hand side of this site.
Joe Pelletier’s Greatest Hockey Legends at http://www.greatesthockeylegends.com/ remains an excellent site, with well-crafted articles on little-known hockey facts and moments. It's so well pulled together, every time.
Of course just about every walking, waking Leaf fan knows about Pension Plan Puppets (http://www.pensionplanpuppets.com/ ) Not a day goes by, I’m sure, without thousands of people stopping by the site for information, stories from a host of solid writers and assorted Leaf news and updates.
Maple Leaf Hot Stove at http://mapleleafshotstove.com/ is an exceptionally good hockey site. Again, a range of writers, views and opinions and thoughtful Leaf perspectives pretty much daily.
I also enjoy the perspective at We Want a Cup http://www.wewantacup.com/ . Just an excellent job all-around. The reflective front-page post alone makes it a must visit.
I’m sure just about every hockey fan knows about Down Goes Brown and his unique work online and at the National Post. He often combines with the always-entertaining Bloge Salming site, at http://www.blogesalming.com/
Long-time former NHL goaltender Phil Myre brings a “been there” perspective at http://www.philmyretalkshockey.com/
Puckin’ eh is an excellent Leaf site that I always enjoy, too, at http://puckineh.com/
One of my favorite hockey (non-Leaf sites) has to do with an organization I’ve developed a fondness for over the years, the Nashville Predators. With low budgets, uncertain ownership (and despite cries that they play in a “non-hockey” market) the Preds have built a first class organization on and off the ice under David Poile and Barry Trotz. And they have a growing and dedicated fan base. Preds on the Glass is an outstanding hockey site that brings us up to date every day throughout the year at http://www.predsontheglass.com/
If you love outstanding photographs of hockey new and old, you’ll never want to miss http://vintageleafs.blogspot.com/
I’d be interested to hear from you about sites I may not even be aware of, but should be! By all means send your suggestions along.
